PLATE CLVH
THE MILES GLACIER AT ABERCROMBIE RAPIDS
The whole of the hill across the river is underlain by ice which shows here in three patches.   It is overlain by ablation moraine bearing vegetation.   The huge bowlders on the other side of the rapids are a part of a heavy terminal moraine.    Photograph, from the railway, by E. A. Hegg in 1909.
